For some, the lack of a second DVI connection will mean headaches when it comes to connecting up more than one monitor but there are HDMI-to-DVI adapters that would fix that without much issue. So with that said, why would anyone buy the GT? Well, confusion for a start. I agree with Rast, the cooling should be across and out of the case. These rates are higher than the reference speeds but the real magic comes into play when you can overclock these clock speeds thanks to ASUS’ custom cooling solution. The answer from ASUS is that because the GT Matrix shares some manufacturing options with other cards, the connectors were left on for easy transition.

ASUS EN9800GT Matrix 512MB Review
It does indeed look like a GT with a gpu switch over. The look of this ASUS range of cooling is growing on me. The GT is perhaps out there on its own with regard to comparisons but comparing it to say a GT or a GTX would be quite predictable in its outcome. PC Power and Cooling watt.

ASUS ENGT Matrix MB –
The back of the card is completely bare of any of the MB of memory the card sports but does have the ASUS “Super Hybrid Engine” that allows for custom clocking and fan speed support. Obviously price also needs to be taken into account which makes comparisons even more difficult – do we compare on price, performance, or price per frame.

Graphics card testing has become the most hotly debated issue in the hardware enthusiast community recently. I agree with Rast, the cooling should be across and out of the case.
Theoretically, the Glaciator should allow for higher overclocks. In fact, it’s almost an exact clone bar the chipset features.
Is Topre Realforce the Realthing? It depends on what your maximum budget is and where the fanboy in you lives. The card is surprisingly light as the cooler that wicks the heat away from the GPU een9800gt compose of mostly aluminum fins.
You can see by peeking under the heatsink why the card is so light – the aluminum fins are surrounding mostly by air as the heat from the GPU is transferred via heatpipes to the complete heatsink. I agree with Rast, the cooling should be across and out of the case. In my mind, the is to compete with the likes of the from an nVidia pov, hence u can use the comment of “so last year” cos, well, it is.
I also tossed in the recently reviewed Galaxy GT card as well for good measure. Home Reviews News Forums. Discuss in our forums. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Trying to get away from the standard reference design graphics boards, the ASUS GT Matrix offers quite a bit above the rest including a custom cooler, overclocked specifications and software that will let users push the card even further.
The boxing gives us the feel of a high quality device more in the vein of an expensive home theater device than your standard video card. So with that said, why would anyone buy the GT? It is very difficult to say which card is competeting against which. Our tests are completely based around the second type aus benchmark method mentioned above — the manual run through.

The GT, on the surface at least, appears to be a clone of the overclockers favourite from the previous generation, the GT. The first is the “timedemo-style” of benchmark. When playing back the demo, the game engine then renders the frames as quickly as possible, which is why you will often see the “timedemo-style” of benchmarks playing back the game much more quickly than you would ever play the game.
I attempted to emphasize more towards the cost per frame, which the gt dosn’t fair too badly to say it is based on last years tech, it’s just the is such a damn good card.
